Wait for somebody to come along that can read HJT logs. Like DMR :)

Aww- I'm flattered... :o :mrgreen:


Hi presmmbb,

1. The IP address that your computer is accessing is within a block of IPs
(216.143.70.0 - 216.143.71.255) associated with McAfee. Since you do have McAfee's Internet Security package installed, my bet would be that the TCP connection is bieng established by that software.


2. Can you explain IE's CPU usage in more detail please? IE definitely does hit the CPU pretty heavily when it first starts up (I get up to an 80% CPU usage spike), but there shouldn't be much of a sustained load on the CPU after IE settles down.


3. When you say "hijacked", are you just referring to the IP address issue mentioned above, or are you also experiencing true hijacks (being redirected to unwanted sites/pages)? The reason I ask is that I see no indications of malicious infections in your HJT log.


4. There are, however, a few irregular entries in the log, which you should fix unless you (or one of your legitimate programs) specifically made the modifications:

O15 - Trusted Zone: www.macromedia.com
O15 - Trusted Zone: www.slickdeals.net
O15 - Trusted Zone: http://www.windows.com
O15 - ProtocolDefaults: '@ivt' protocol is in My Computer Zone, should be Intranet Zone
O15 - ProtocolDefaults: 'file' protocol is in My Computer Zone, should be Internet Zone
O15 - ProtocolDefaults: 'ftp' protocol is in My Computer Zone, should be Internet Zone
O15 - ProtocolDefaults: 'http' protocol is in My Computer Zone, should be Internet Zone
O15 - ProtocolDefaults: 'https' protocol is in My Computer Zone, should be Internet Zone

DMR...

First off, thanks for the help...

Its good to know that the IP address it isnt some malicious site...

as for my hijacked and cpu usage referance; i meant that when ever I open IE my IE cpu usage goes up to like 97% and stays that way(mind you I have 1.25 gig of RAM, and nothing should be taking that much) untill I endtask the IExplorer process...

IE is pretty much unresponsive through out this entire ordeal... I have my homepage set to Blank, and nothing comes on, it does not open any new windows... it just stay blank and unresponsive.

I disabled the Enable Third-Party Browser Extensions from the IE tool, internet options, advance tab... and the problem stopped, although I want to solve the problem not the symptom :-)

I need the trusted Zones, but how do I fix the ProtocolDefaults?

Again... Thanks for the help.... :-)

I'm assuming that full system scans with your McAfee, ewido, etc. turn up nothing which would account for the problem, right?

I disabled the Enable Third-Party Browser Extensions from the IE tool, internet options, advance tab... and the problem stopped

Although they're legitimate, you do have quite a few IE add-ons loading; one of those could be corrupted or causing a problem in some other way. You might want to see if you can pinpoint a culprit by disabling the extensions one at a time. IE doesn't offer this functionality itself, but you can do it with the handy (and free) Toolbarcop utility.

how do I fix the ProtocolDefaults?

Fixing them with HijackThis will set them back to their correct, default value- just put a check mark next to each entry and then click "Fix Checked".

Again... Thanks for the help.... :-)

You're welcome; glad we could help :)
